TITAN project

The TITAN project advances the development of a robotic arm for satellite servicing. Under the contract, a prototype of a multi-articulated robotic arm will be made for the future deorbiting and servicing of in-orbit satellites. A laboratory model of a robotic joint will be created, and then – a prototype consisting of various types of … Continued
